Default What turkey hunting means to me seen thru my wife's eyes

I had put this up last year just thought maybe all the new poults would enjoy reading it.


I just wanted to share a poem my wife wrote for me.

Turkey Hunter

Leaning back against the tree
As you sit upon the ground
Being so careful to be still
Trying hard to make no sound

The beauty of nature
Takes your breath away
You feel like you are part of it
And you wish this is where you could always stay

As you sit there patiently
You double-check your gear
And give a few yelps on your call
And then be still and wait to hear

In the distance, you hear him gobble
And your blood starts pumping
You hear him coming toward you
Your heart is madly thumping

You wait until you see him
Strutting proudly into the clearing
You can hardly keep your self in check
As closer he is nearing

And when the time is perfect
And you have him in your sight
You fire your shot and say a prayer
As the bullet takes its flight

Your mark is true, the proud one falls, and
You rise and walk to where he rests
You bow your head and give thanks
For the gift with which you have been blessed

Thanks BT..I told her she said Thanks too. We make shadow boxes with this in the back ground with a tail feather or feathers from a harvested bird tha guys have gotten. We put one of the calls they used also.

Hey Bt one other ? for ya? Do you think I should take all the team posts and condense them into one post and then they can answer each other on that one post instead? And maybe pin it to the top.

The best part of the poem is the last part, bowing your head and giving thanks. We are fortunate to be able to hunt in this great country and lets not forget the Creater who made this all possible.

Thats Great Poem Pat,
It's great that your wife see's your passion for Turkey's.....

I dont think the Mod's would appreciate it much if I put down the things my wife says about me and Turkey hunting- I'd probaly be booted
